I am a work-at-home coach. My areas of expertise include telecommuting (work-at-home jobs) and home businessess.

Experience in the area

I have been working from home since 1997 and online since 1998. I created Work-At-Home Success one of the first work-at-home information and resource sites on the net in 1998. I am the author of The Work-At-Home Success Bible which offers details on telecommuting, home business and more. I currently telecommute part-time as a social worker and run several online ventures.

What do you like about this subject?

Work-at-home options are constantly changing. I love how its becoming easier and easier to find great ways to create your own work and your own lifestyle.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Keeping up with all the work-at-home opportunities, particularly online is one of the greatest challenges. My mission is to stay abreast of work-at-home information and provide it to others.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Did you know that over 30 million people already work at home in a job or home business? Did you know that small business accounts for over half of the economic output in the U.S. and that half of all small business is conducted from home? (2006).

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Each year people waste over $40 billion on scams. On the other hand, many people avoid legitimate, viable work-at-home opportunites such as those offered in network marketing out of fear of being scammed?
